Basis Technology Boosts Efficiency of UnitedLex's E-Discovery Service Solution

The Rosette Language Identifier Flags Files for Review by Language Specialists

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  Basis Technology today announced that UnitedLex, a global leader in technology-powered legal and business solutions, has deployed the Rosette Language Identifier in its predictable per-document, fixed-price e-discovery solution, eMergence. Within eMergence, Rosette scans thousands of documents in seconds, detecting the language and encoding of each file. Rosette allows case managers to know upfront what language specialists will be required during review, allowing for more accurate staffing and cost estimations at project start.

Rosette Language Identifier detects 55 languages covering the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. It also gives eMergence the ability to detect multiple languages within a single document. Thus, an email chain containing replies in more than one language will be correctly partitioned by language.

"At UnitedLex, we pride ourselves in leveraging technology to give our customers the most efficient solutions in terms of cost, quality and time so the adoption of the Rosette Language Identifier was a natural choice for us," said Gerardo Herrera, Chief Information Officer of UnitedLex. "We were impressed by Rosette's high-throughput and support of every language and encoding our clients are likely to run into in the business world."

"In a world where electronic data is growing exponentially, cutting edge e-discovery providers such as UnitedLex are leveraging advanced technology solutions such as Rosette to give their customers an edge both in efficiency and comprehensiveness to reduce cost and risk," said Carl Hoffman, CEO of Basis Technology. "We're pleased to support another provider of e-discovery solutions for our Rosette Language Identifier."
